However, since he is absent, we will table this discussion, also.

7. Invoices: Bill from the village for the seal coating company, McCurdy. We are paying the bill to the village. View Newspapers, Schnell’s Services, Consumers, Rogue Professional, Spartan Fence. However, it was mentioned that perhaps the fence should be covered by the insurance since the July storm tore it down.Dave said that this should go to the village because Karen M. stated that the village will have to send it into insurance. Brad made a motion to pay the bills, Anita made the second motion. Roll call vote taken, and was unanimous to pay the bills. Motion approved.

8. Dave Schnell spoke about how the fence not only was knocked over, but also the cement posts had to be removed. Schnell’s rented a machine and removed the posts. Dave will call Spartan Fence regarding the cost of removing the cement, etc. to see if they cover the removal of the fence, also, or is that an insurance issue.

9. Building for the park, material will be dropped off by the end of this week. However, Pete suggested that we wait until we see what is covered by insurance. Dave will talk to John from town council regarding that.

10. Pete mentioned the need to talk about the legal necessity of being transparent with our minutes and they have not yet been updated. Dave said that he will speak to Brad regarding that.
